UEFA have confirmed the Ajax goalkeeper's suspension is effective as of February 5 after an 'out-of-competition' check found Furosemide in his urine sample last year.
The Dutch giants are ready to aid Onana in an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) - but that hasn't stopped FIFA fans.
Worried the 24-year-old will be removed from packs, some have seen it as the perfect way to drive his price up to 8600 coins on PlayStation and nearly 10000 on PC at the time of writing.
In the tweet above, Onana's price is measured on a graph and jumps around the same time of Ajax's statement at 10am this morning.
The Cameroonian is an 84-rated card and a dependable pair of hands between the sticks.
He can also be used in a number of Squad Builder Challenges thanks to his higher rating.
EA Sports have removed cards from circulation in the past, meaning Onana's removal until his ban is complete or rescinded is entirely possible.
It is being claimed that Onana "mistakenly" took his wife's medicine on the day of his failed test back in October.
Ajax's official statement on the ban reads: "On the morning of October 30, Onana was feeling unwell."
He wanted to take a pill to ease the discomfort. Unknowingly, however, he took Lasimac, a drug that his wife had previously been prescribed.
"Onana's confusion resulted in him mistakenly taking his wife's medicine, ultimately causing this measure to be taken by UEFA against the goalkeeper. Furthermore, the disciplinary body of the football association has stated that Onana had no intention of cheating.
"However, the European Football Association believes, on the basis of the applicable anti-doping rules, that an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.
"Onana and Ajax will appeal the decision to CAS."
Chief executive Edwin van der Sar said: "We explicitly renounce performance-enhancing drugs, we obviously stand for a clean sport.
"This is a terrible setback, for Andre himself but certainly also for us as a club. Andre is a top goalkeeper, who has proven his worth for Ajax for years and is very popular with the fans.
"We had hoped for a conditional suspension or for a suspension much shorter than these twelve months, because it was arguably not intended to strengthen his body and thus improve his performance."
It caps off a miserable week for Ajax, who accidentally left out record signing Sebastien Haller from their Europa League squad.
